Monson Trash/Recycling Guidelines
Please ensure that your trash and recycling are placed at the curb by 7:00am on your scheduled service day and that recycling has been separated in two bins; one for cardboard and paper and one for plastics and bottles. Weekly curbside trash collections per home is limited to the equivalent of (1) 35 gallon barrel or 5 bags. Occasionally, especially during weather events, it is possible for drivers to miss picking up your trash or recycling that has been placed at the curb on its scheduled day.
